Ficus brunneoaurata  is a Borneo endemic which  does occur in the lowlands but prefers hill forest throughout Borneo.  This fig can easily be distinguished from the very similar  small trees Ficus fulva and Ficus aurata by the orange red stipules and the prominent glands at the base of the basal veins on the undersurface of the leaf.Bruneoaurata IMG_8919 - Copy.JPG
